We’re in that standard mid-winter pattern now: snow, groom, snow some more, groom some more.  No rain, no ice, no warming temps,  no melting, just day-in and day-out of more snow.  The pine boughs have stayed coated in snow, so every day we are in a living Christmas card picture.

The following measurements from the Baumann family were taken yesterday, but of course it snowed again last night, as much as 6 inches in some spots.  The groomers are all out on the trails again today and it seems to be taking awhile this time — lots of fresh snow!
